Join the Kitchen Robotics revolution

The future of the restaurant industry is in your hands.

we solve problems

Restaurants are struggling.

Covid Closures

Over 65,000 restaurants closed in Western Europe since the start of the pandemic.

Food Cost

Ingredient costs have risen by 8% in Spain over the last 2 years.

Labour Shortage

Covid will continue to dramatically change work, and restaurants are years from recovery.

Efficiency

New, untrained labour means low efficiency and consistency in food prep.

Food Waste

12% average food waste across the food sector. Thats on top of the 30% waste in agriculture.

Delivery Margins

It was already tough, but labour increases are wiping out even the slimmest margins.

Software Built in the cloud

Manage LEX from anywhere

Robust & Scalable infrastructure

Cloud and ML Architecture

Utilizing innovations in the IoT space and Amazon, WeTechFood is able to build a robust infrastructure that is able to handle the demands of the future. The cloud infrastructure is built on top of the latest technologies, and is able to handle the demands of the future. Microservice-based, event-driven architecture is at the core of our systems, allowing growth and scalability without the need to refactor at scale.

Live Tracking of all LEXs

Situational Awareness

By implementing a cloud-based integration from the start, WeTechFood can be proactive with the tracking orders on all LEXs in the wild. That means higher order speeds, less maintainence time and more flexibility to adapt to the changing needs of the LEX's customers and operators. It also means LEX operators don't need to be machine operating experts to get the most out of their food production.

OUR JOURNEY SO FAR

A path to restaurant innovation.

Seed , 2020

Received funding through our first investor (owner of UNICO). A laser hair removal business with up to 400 stores.

Design

Switched focus on the improving the robot instead of opening a restaurant chain.

Team , 2021

Hired our first employee Jesus, who started off as an intern but soon became our mechanical engineer.

Prototype

Finished creating our first two robot prototypes as our restaurant opening got delayed.

COVID

Pandemic hit strong in 2021 and our opening of a restaurant got delayed. Put focus on the robot and focused on cold plates, although we have the options of heating.

Iteration

Continued improving our robot design to measure up to two decimal places while enabling it to be controlled through network.

Team

Hired two more people: Javier our Electronical engineer Lead, and our CTO with vast experience in Robotics and coming from a recently bought spanish company called ASTI

Funding

Landed 490K with milestones. Finished in December. Used part of this funding to create our Software. Currently industrializing our first robot. Ready to launch our first robotic company
